Magnesium-rich food reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases
Studies have shown that people who eat more magnesium-rich food are at lower risk of developing cardiovascular diseases. This may be due to the effect magnesium has in lowering blood pressure. High blood pressure is a significant risk factor for cardiovascular diseases.
If you eat a varied diet, with plenty of fruit and vegetables, there is no need to consume extra magnesium in the form of supplements.
